This is one for the Rock music-making enthusiasts out there. Whether you’re a seasoned drummer or guitar player or have never picked up a pair of drum sticks or a guitar in your life, this special Christmas bundle will have you rocking round the Christmas tree faster than you can say Brenda Lee.
Courtesy of virtual instrument specialists Vir2, this bundle contains BASiS, Electri6ity and the brand new Studio Kit Builder for the special fantastically festive price of £449 – that’s a saving of over £114!
Vir2 Studio Kit Builder brings together the most complete collection of acoustic drum kits ever delivered into one Kontakt-powered plugin. With 130 drum kit pieces and more than 50 prebuilt drum kits, you can create your perfect drum kit whatever your choice of style and genre.
In addition to the comprehensive collection of drums, you also get full control over multiple mic positions and multi-track mixing of the kit. The huge variety of built-in MIDI grooves make the job of creating pristine and professional drum parts simple whether you´re working on a sultry brush groove or a hard-hitting metal track.
According to Computer Music magazine Electri6ity is “the most comprehensive electric guitar package we’ve seen” and Sound on Sound were equally impressed by the “in-depth parameters that offer many ways to add finely detailed nuances to a performance.” It’s no wonder then, that several months after release, the forums are still buzzing with excitement about this epic virtual instrument.
Electri6ity contains eight of the most famous and distinguished guitar tones in the history of the instrument – Strat, Tele, P90, Les Paul, Rickenbacker, Danelectro Lipstick, ES335, L4. More than 24,000 24-bit samples were taken of each one allowing you to play every articulation on every fret of every string for an absolutely authentic guitar sound. Three pickup options (front, rear, and mixed) are available on every guitar plus downstrokes, upstrokes, seamless velocity layers, ghost notes, mutes, harmonics, hammer-ons, pulloffs, slides, releases, and FX...
The authenticity is accentuated furthermore with Electri6ity’s incredibly advanced scripting, including the revolutionary Articulation Morphing Technology (A.M.T.) and Velocity Morphing Technology (V.M.T.) allowing for the seamless morphing from dead mute to sustain or from soft to loud. Advanced string and fretboard positioning is performed by artificial intelligence which adapts to your playing. Play fluid lines in real time using the legato engine, play chords using the chord detection engine which understands almost 2000 different chords, easily double-track, do unison bends, strum, pick, trill, tremolo pick, slide...all of this is built into the Electri6ity engine and full editing control is given over each of these parameters.
If you’re looking to include guitars of the low-end variety in your tracks, the second Vir2 Instrument in this special Christmas bundle is sure to complete your guitar collection. Featuring upright, fretless, synth and electric basses, BASiS delivers classics like the Jazz Bass, P-Bass, Rickenbacker, and Musicman basses alongside personality and genre tributes such as a classic Motown bass, a gospel bass, Jaco´s Fretless, and Macca´s Hofner. One upright bass and three slap basses are also included.
When it comes to the synth bass category, more than a hundred patches are provided, ranging from thumping vintage synth basses to techno basses and esoteric fresh creations to spice up your tracks whatever your musical style – you’ll see what we mean when you check out the mp3 demos!
Numerous effects and performance features such as the innovative legato tool for true finger-smooth playing, and character vibrato modelled after real bass players, mean BASiS is as playable as it is authentic-sounding, and you don’t even need to know how to play bass guitar to use it!
